I went to WalMart yesterday and had to buy hair color. My hair has been black all my life - until I hit about 30 or so and then, I started to find a random grey or two.
I played around with different brands and shades of color until I found the perfect match - Miss Clairol Nice n Easy 121A. I can only find this at WalMart.
Yesterday, though, they were all out of 121A, so I settled for a slightly lighter shade, but still dark. It just doesn't look the same, although I can live with it. So, now I have a new hair cut and a new color...
I had asked a few weeks ago about deal breakers and a couple of guys had mentioned being turned off by gals who wear too much make up. Hmmm. When I think too much make up, I think Tammy Faye Bakker.
I know I fuss a lot with my hair and make up, but I don't think it's overkill. I just have a lot of products I enjoy using. But, for a girl, I think I do a good job of getting myself together in the mornings. It takes me 30 to 45 minutes from shower to voila! And that includes: shower, shampoo, hair dry, style, getting dressed and make up. Make up includes: moisturizer, concealer, foundation, blush, loose powder finish, eyeliner, lash curling, mascara, lip liner and lipstick.
I multi-task by drying my hair while I apply my make up.... I wear the mineral powder stuff, so it's easy to apply while doing other things. The only things I don't do are my eyes and lips while drying my hair because they require more concentration.
All that being said, I don't think I look overly made up. I like to think that I use the products to give me a more polished look that makes me feel semi-presentable to leave the house. When I feel like I look decent, I feel better.
There are many women I know who spend hours on themselves just to get out the door. I don't think my 30 to 45 minutes is too shabby in the scope of things.
And remember, ladies: eyelash curler - don't leave home without it!
